This chapter provides a short introduction to the part of this volume dealing with distributed control of power grids. A brief description of some of the challenges facing existing power grids from a control perspective is given. The research community dealing with distributed control of power grids is highly active, and there already exists a vast literature on the topic. A coverage of this literature with any pretense of full or partial completeness would be difficult (if not impossible) and is not in any way attempted in this brief introduction.
